Obituary For George Henry Uihlein

George Henry Uihlein, of Milwaukee, passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 14, 2022. Born to Herman A Uihlein and Nancie (Dauer) Uihlein in 1951, he is survived by his loving wife Susan (Ruedy) Uihlein, children Justin D Uihlein (Taylor), George A Uihlein, and grandchildren Millie and Wyatt Uihlein. He is further survived by brothers H Alfred Uihlein, Peter T Uihlein (Pam), sister Linda R Uihlein, nephews P Timothy Uihlein (Megan), Mattson Uihlein (Caroline), and many other relatives. George’s sense of humor and kindness touched everyone he met. Graduating from the University School of Milwaukee in 1970, George formed many lifetime friendships with his USM classmates. He received his BSBA from University of Denver in 1974, and was a banker at First Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Union Bank of Bavaria in Munich, and Société Generale in NY. George and his family enjoyed their life and friends in the Milwaukee, Madison, Florida, and Oconto areas. He also enjoyed volunteering at Schlitz Audubon, The Nature Conservancy, and the Ozaukee Hockey Rink. George's greatest joy was being a father and Opa. He courageously battled cancer and transplants over the past 17 years with kindness and without complaint. We would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at UW Hospital, Dr. Longo, and the organ donors to whom he owed his life. A special thank you for the support of the Bald Eagles Hockey Team and the Verona Senior Center. A private memorial service will be planned in the north woods later this fall.

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
